    I'm sorry, but couldn't understand a word you just typed.

    It is well known that when attending Landy Zone, in order to prepare oneself for the experience a large, stiff drink is required.

    Could it be your visits are so frequent that alcohol intoxication has taken affect and as such it is not your phone working incorrectly but more your ability to type etc.

    I thought gibberish and range rover ownership was normal.

    Whilst it's a fair commcom (comment) you make, no, in the predictive bar at the top of the keyboard, the word is ccorrec (correct) but whewh (when) I tap said word somethsom (something) entirely different appeappe (appears) on screen.

    What may be happening is that as you start to type the word, the predicted word comes up on screen and when you tap the selected word, the cursor moves, causing the initial letters you have typed, rather than being replaced by the word you have tapped (stay with me), to remain and be added to the word you have selected.
    I have had a similar issue , when I changed my tablet. My 'fix' was to be a little more aware of it and ensure that the cursor hadnt found it's way to middle of the already typed letters.It still happens occasionally but not as much as it did.
    Hope this makes sense and helps

    Sorry to hijack the thread but reading this prompts me to ask: Why do some of my replies appear in small print (as in the OP's text when I click on 'reply') whereas on other occasions my text appears standard size, as in this post. Not being especially computer literate I don't change anything in the way of settings etc.

    If you accidentally type your text before the closing /QUOTE tag, or delete it, then your reply will effectively be part of the quoted text.

    Definitely not that It works fine everywhere else and i haven't changed anything.
    Sometimes, just pressing the space bar or full stop can bring up numerous random characters.

    Moved because anyone else having this issue will likely look here.

    Other than that I haven't a clue :confused:

    Afraid that's all I have. Perhaps a quick search on your manufacturer's forums might bring up some ideas?

    One of the reasons why I stayed here was the lack of a requirement for correct spelling. There was a point when all posts were typed in colonialisms

    Do you mean colloquialisms?
    Colonialisms are used merely to offend Aussies I thought.:D

    Same problem here. Takes a very long time to type a response on my phone on this forum. Odd.
